Rehearsing Vixen

No, I haven't abandoned the blog.

I've been busy.

First I had to cram 3 acts of opera into my brain and under my fingers.

Here is the weaponry to my immediate left:

Allan keeps the mood light:

We transfer our small ensemble into an even smaller parcel of stage at the Center Theater on Tuesday.

Until then, you'll find me in the practice room...
